Another place - Anthony Gormley

We cycled down the coast from Southport to Crosby to see the 100 statues on the beach. They stretch out over three kilometres, some higher up on the sand, and others deeper in the sea.
I made friends with one that was about halfway down the beach so he spends a lot of time in cold water. On close inspection he is loosing his looks under a growth of barnacles and green seaweed.
The statues are all identical and were made using a cast of the body of their creator - Anthony Gormley. They have lived on the beach for about ten years now and they look very peaceful as they stare out to sea, just waiting.
For what?  Tide and time.
